#SLS ~ 9/4/22

The prompts are Sounds, Talk, Voice, Words suggested by Di of pensitivity101. Thank Jim for hosting. Oooh, so many options hard to narrow down to one. Dart board got me to pick “Little Talks” performed by Of Monsters & Men. Songwriters: Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdottir / Ragnar Thorhallsson. All four words are used, how cool is that?!?!

I don’t like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand, I’ll walk with you my dear
The stairs creak as you sleep
It’s keeping me awake
It’s the house telling you to close your eyes
And some days I can’t even dress myself
It’s killing me to see you this way

‘Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

There’s an old voice in my head
That’s holding me back
Well, tell her that I miss our little talks
Soon it will be over and buried with our past
We used to play outside when we were young
And full of life and full of love
Some days I don’t know if I am wrong or right
Your mind is playing tricks on you, my dear

‘Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Don’t listen to a word I say
(Hey)
The screams all sound the same
(Hey)

And though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

You’re gone, gone, gone away
I watched you disappear
All that’s left is a ghost of you
Now we’re torn, torn, torn apart
There’s nothing we can do
Just let me go, we’ll meet again soon

Now wait, wait, wait for me, please hang around
I’ll see you when I fall asleep

Don’t listen to a word I say
(Hey)
The screams all sound the same
(Hey)

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Don’t listen to a word I say
(Hey)
The screams all sound the same
(Hey)

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~ 9/4/22

Well I took off Friday and will be off tomorrow making this a four day Labor Day weekend. I went to physical therapy Friday, got bad (or not the best if not completely bad) news, came home and napped too much making for poor sleep. Yesterday Lulu & I walked over 5 miles to shake the cobwebs loose. Well for me. I’m still doing the damn homework from physical therapy to try to keep things at bay. I’m not looking forward to this next set of tests but dammit, I need to find out what is wrong with me. The pain is off the charts lately or should I say always.

On a more positive note, I’m taking chances and trying to get out of my head more. I have my outlet support group. A sorority of sorts though not one anyone wants to join. Rather a cohort created by people bonding over shared trauma. #iykyk

Now let’s roll call

Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.

As always, more to come.
